Technical fault forces Aer Lingus plane to make unscheduled landing

An Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to London was forced to land at Birmingham this morning because of a technical fault.

Flight EI 152 made the unscheduled landing after passengers were told there was a possible fuel leak.

The plane landed safely shortly after 7.30am and passengers continued their journey by bus.

Meanwhile, a Delta flight from Rome to New York was forced to divert to Shannon this afternoon after an elderly patient became ill on board.

The man was taken to hospital in Limerick and the flight continued on its journey.
